Project Status: Refurbishment

Programme: 16 weeks

Location: Oxford

Shortlisted for Architects' Journal Small Project of the year

This refurbishment of a late 19th century, three-storey terrace in east Oxford – which has been entered into this year’s AJ Small Projects Awards – includes the insertion of a lofty double-height library space, stair and attached study.

Lined with birch-ply shelving and red terracotta floors, while utilising white powder-coated steel for the stairs and library ladder, the scheme helps maximise daylight to the previously underlit lower ground floor.
